This Australian-owned hostel is located on Sukhumvit Soi, about a 5-7 minute walk from the Sky Train. Although the location is a bit far (actually opposite end) of most of the city sights, it is central to the interesting night section of seedy Bangkok. With free wireless, and air conditioned rooms, it's a decent place to spend a night or two exploring the city. There is also a restaurant/bar in the hostel, which is open 24 hours. While the food certainly isn't any cheaper than an average restaurant, it helps with the convenience factor. Cost was 560BHT for two people in a double room with a shared bathroom.
Big Johns is a internet cafe that sells home baked pies, and also offers budget accomodation to the traveller on a tight budget. John is an Australian guy who is not that big, apart from his belly! A really nice man full of info and chat to all travellers.
A little away from the main attractions, but the Skytrain station is only 5 mins walk and there are plenty of bus routes that go past this area.
Unique Quality: .The rooms are basic, but clean and tidy.
Prices are really cheap, but check website for current tarrifs.
Internet use is include in the price of your stay, handy for e-mail communications.
You can get food any time of the day and will never be lonely here as it is used by a nice group of people generally.
